Texas Family Violence Defense Attorney

Allegations of “Assault-Family Violence” present unique psychological, emotional, and external factors that are not present in normal criminal cases. Criminal charges involving allegations of domestic assault or family violence are usually more complex to defend than other criminal cases.

Due to the personal relationship between the two parties involved, it’s easy to make the mistake of thinking this is a private matter. Even if police are not called to the scene, victims may file charges at a later date with their local police department, making it a very public matter.

Protect your rights and seek the services of Christopher W. Simpkins.
